“Hypnotising in the funniest way.  I think you’re fabulous” - Alesha Dixon

“the response from the crowd sheer, unquestioning joy” ★★★★ Bath Theatre


With support from local women comedians.

Mrs Barbara Nice is the comedy creation of Janice Connolly. Barbara is your average Stockport housewife who given up the domestic bliss of Tupperware and Pound Stretcher shops for the unpredictability of the comedy world. No audience is too rowdy for her to handle – she’s already raised five teenagers. With the affectionate attitude of a playgroup leader at a wild Iggy Pop concert, Barbara is guaranteed to warm the heart of any audience.

Having supported Johnny Vegas and Peter Kay, Barbara is now a circuit headline act in her own right, as well as being one of the most experienced comperes in the country. She has also performed solo shows in Edinburgh, Brighton and Manchester.

She will put a smile on your face and a spring in your step.

Suitable for all ages
